Jack Morris the first competitor on Australian Ninja Warrior

IT WAS almost a feat Hercules himself wouldn't be able to achieve, but Leeton’s Jack Morris gave it his best shot. 

Mr Morris was the country’s first ever competitor on Australian Ninja Warrior on Sunday night. 

The program aired on Channel 9 and Mr Morris literally threw his body into the tough, gruelling and physical obstacle course. 

Earning huge popularity overseas, the show is now trending here in Australia following last night’s Australian premiere. 

While Mr Morris didn’t complete the full course, it was the experience itself that was worthwhile. 

“I’ve met a lot of great people and made some good friends all over Australia by doing this,” he said.

Mr Morris is an acrobat and while the course was difficult, he felt his training in that area had allowed him to compete to the best of his ability. 

He said his family were by his side throughout the journey and they could even be seen by eagle watchers on Sunday night cheering him on as he attempted to make his way through the course. 

“My parents have always been really big supporters of anything I’ve wanted to do … they’ve always pushed me to go after my dreams,” Mr Morris said.
